Migrant Workers Are Not Included In Lebanon’s Vaccination Plan

Caretaker Minister of Labor Lamia Yammine raised concerns over the migrant workers in Lebanon the government failed to include in its coronavirus vaccination program, compelling her ministry to reach out to UN agencies and embassies for a solution.

The ministry issued a call on February 1st for all employers in the country to vaccinate their staff, regardless of their nationality, and based on the requirements of the health and safety laws of the workplace.

Teaming up with UN agencies, mainly the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Lebanese Labor Ministry is now mapping out a plan to vaccinate approximately 250,000 migrant workers in Lebanon.
